Re: linux documentation

Linux docs are in a separate package in [core].  The kernel should detect new NICs if they are supported.  If it needs a special module, look in the AUR.

Re: linux documentation

NIC works as should.

my question is different: briefly: where can i find options available for a module ?

Re: linux documentation

We should teach you more google. I found "via_rhine kernel module" to be quite an insightful query.
